It’s only the end of April, but the MLB streakers are already at mid-season form.
From the YouTube description:
During the traditional playing of John Denver’s ” Thank God I’m a Country Boy” in the 7th inning stretch of the Orioles game on April 27, fans cheered as a shirtless fan dodged police all over the ballfield at Camden Yards. Umpire Jeff Kellogg finally managed the put out, but not until after Country Boy slid in safe at home.
We’re going to have to defer to BadJocks readers who bowl: how, exactly, does having naked pictures of teenaged girls on your cell phone help you bowl better? We’re not trying to say we understand all the nuances of knocking down the 10 pins, but would they really take the place of say, practicing? Or a new ball? We’re confused that anyone would come up with this con game, much less fall for it.
Police near Bloomsburg (PA) charged Michael Nearhoof over the weekend with having inappropriate contact with the student last year. Nearhoof was a volunteer bowling coach at Columbia-Montour Vo-Tech for six years. Police said last summer he sent sexually graphic text and picture messages to a 16-year-old girl, and told her it would help him with his bowling game.
Megan Wertman lives in what she calls a quiet neighborhood near Bloomsburg. She was shocked to find out the married man who lives across the street from her, Michael Nearhoof, is accused of having inappropriate contact with a 16-year-old girl who he coached in bowling.
“It’s pretty disgusting. I wouldn’t think that. This is a nice neighborhood. I would never think that,” said Wertman. Nearhoof, 47, was a volunteer bowling coach at Columbia-Montour Vo-Tech for six years. Police said a 16-year-old female student told them Nearhoof sent her sexually graphic text and picture messages from July until August last year. Police said Nearhoof encouraged the student to send him graphic pictures, saying it would help him with his bowling game.
From our “Special Place in Hell” Dept: Jeff Halter, 40, came to Hobart, Indiana (near Chicago) with a glowing resume and the promise to build a traveling baseball team of elite local players. Parents of budding ballplayers (mostly 11-year-olds) gladly stepped up and each paid Halter $675 for uniforms, practice time and travel expenses. Practices started, everything looked good, and then according to police, Halter stopped showing up.
According to the boys parents, they then received a letter from Halter saying he had suffered a “breakdown” of some kind, but would be back soon. They became suspicious and checked in with the local uniform shop, only to find out that Halter allegedly had not paid for or even ordered the boy’s uniforms. A quick check of is resume found out that it had also been padded. And now, weeks later, no one has heard from Halter.
Halter is still on the loose, but has now been charged with 10 counts of felony theft.
